In case you missed it

Nairametrics had reported that some properties across London, Dubai, Lagos and Abuja have been allegedly linked to the Accountant-General of the Federation, Ahmed Idris, who was arrested by the Economic and Financial Crimes Commission over N80 billion fraud.

This was disclosed by a source in the anti-graft agency, who preferred anonymity, on Thursday.

According to the source, the missing fund is actually more than N80 billion, as the agency only quoted the figure based on its current findings.

What the source is saying about the findings

He said, “Though we are currently investigating the whole issue but it is certain that the said fraud is worth more than N80 billion.

“It is true that some properties in London, Dubai, Lagos and Abuja are linked to the Accountant-General and I believe more revelations would soon be made soon. He used proxies to buy some of these properties and we will be engaging the proxies shortly, as we will not leave any stone untouched.”
